Habitat for Humanity Dedicates 17th
"We had some hot times this summer," Figg said, noting Cairns' sweat equity hours. "Sometimes, this tests your homeowners... how bad do they really want a house?" "Cindy has worked side by side with us, hot or cold, and helped to build her own house," Figg said. In addressing Cairns, he added, "We appreciate everything you have done." Sunday's ceremony also included a message from Brent Reeter, pastor of Lifepoint Church in Chillicothe.
Construction of the next house will likely begin in February or March of 2018. The house will be located near the corner of Springhill and Monroe streets. The recipient of the next house is to be announced Wednesday, November 1. The board and family selection committee met with a group of 10 perspective homeowners to start the process for next year's house. Anyone interested in helping build the next house is asked to contact Tony Figg at 660-247-3675.

When home number 16 was dedicated on October 23, 2016, Cindy Cairns and her children, Morgan and Jesse, were introduced as the next Habitat for Humanity family. To be eligible to become a Habitat home recipient, qualified applicants must have a housing need, be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity, and be able to pay for their home. Watch the progress of the build in excerpts below.
An interesting fact shared at the 16th home dedication was that in 2003, that house sold for between $35,000 and $40,000. Nowadays, the houses are between $75,000 and $80,000.
April 28, 2017 - Volunteers from several states are in Chillicothe to help build the next Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity home. When the six volunteers - from Minnesota, Kansas and Michigan - arrived Monday, there was just a concrete slab poured at the site. The crew - also known as "the traveling framers" - was building the interior walls on Thursday and hoped to set the trusses early next week. The volunteers will stay through next week. The home is the 17th home to be built through the Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity and is located by last year's Habitat for Humanity home near McNally and Normal streets. The home will be purchased by Cindy Cairns, who has already started putting in her required "sweat equity" hours.
May 3, 2017 - A wooden truss is lifted for placement atop of the Habitat for Humanity home being constructed near the corner of McNally and Normal streets in Chillicothe. Case Contracting donated the use of the forklift, with Raymond Quinn and Zach Quinn operating the equipment to place the trusses.
